A Pen for Bill

I stitched Bill a small change purse that he uses to keep his tees in and he likes that. But, I wanted to stitch something more for him. So, I picked up this Stitch-A-Pen by Kreinik for his birthday. He loves pens and is picky about the ink and how it writes! Parker’s are not his favorite but I think he’ll probably use it.

I just went with the design that came with the pen. It’ll be like Christmas in July! And, snow and trees are universally pleasing to men and women. He should like it. It worked up very quickly and was easy to assemble. With only 3 threads, can you believe I accidentally used the pearl for the trees and by the time I figured out what I’d done, I wasn’t going to switch it. And, I actually like it better. The trees are more noticeable and the snow flakes are more shimmery and delicate! Serendipity.

This makes a great gift (not too expensive and not too much time to stitch)-don’t tell Bill. The pen is refillable and useful. Just a satisfied customer sharing my thoughts.

Now, I just hope Bill likes it!
